About Slot Machines games
Online slot machines have many different characteristics. First of all, their are defined by:
- Spinning reels: the reels are the vertical lines on which the "symbols" are displayed. A slot machine has usually between 3 and 5 reels.
- Pay lines: The number of pay lines is basically the number of lines on which you can bet. A slot machine has between 1 and 100 pay lines.
Note: a few slot machines do not have a regular amount of reels / pay lines (for instance Bruce Lee slot). But these slot machines are rare.
How to bet on online slot machines?
When you play in real money, the slot machine is credited with a certain amount of coins (depending on the coin value that you chose). For instance, if you chose a coin value of $0.10 and that you deposit $100, the slot machine will be credited by 1000 coins. If you chose a coin value of $1, you will have 100 coins.
Once you decided the coin value, you will then decide on how many pay lines you want to bet (1,10,25, etc.). We usually advise to bet on the maximum number of pay lines, as this usually allows you to be eligible to the jackpot (when there is one).
Last but not least, you can bet more coins on each line (usually between 1 to 5 times more). For instance, if you decide to bet 5 coins on each line, and that you bet on 25 lines, your bet will be 25 * 5, i.e 125 coins. Got it?
Then click to "Spin" and may the "luck" be with you!
Online slot machines features
Free Spins: a free spin is triggered after a specific combination of symbols. This combination depends on the slot machine characteristics (check the payout). Usually it is after you get 3 or 4 scatter symbols on a pay line. Some free spins have multipliers which "multiply" your free spins winnings.
Re Spins: a "re spin" is when you have the possibility to keep some reels and spin again the others. The "re spin" can be triggered by a specific symbol, or every time on some slot machines.
Wild / Expanding Wild: a wild stands in for another symbol. An expanding wild is a wild triggered on the whole reel.
Scatter: a scatter is usually the symbol that will award you with free spins. You will need to get at least 2 or 3 on a single pay line.
Mini-games / Bonus game: there are lots of different mini-games. You will be awarded with a mini-game once you get a specific combinations of symbols.
